“a cosy quiet flat”

This is the second time we have stayed in the Garden Flat. It is situated in a quiet neighbourhood only half an hour’s walk from the city centre or you can also take the bus which is just round the corner. We can’t but praise the flat itself: spotlessly clean, very quiet with a nice little patio to enjoy summer evenings. Complete kitchen, big bathroom and bedrooms.
Bruce and Julie are a nice couple, always helpful and available to give information about Brighton and the surroundings.
Definitely 10/10.
Looking forward to coming back next summer.

“Peaceful and relaxing stay”

The garden flat is exactly as described in the details but what it doesn't say is how peaceful and quiet the area is. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in and the cookies which were left on our arrival was a very nice welcome! We slept in lovely comfortable beds and awoke each morning to the sound of birds singing. The flat is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront but within easy walking distance of all amenities. Everything provided is of a very high standard and you couldn't wish for anything better! We would definitely want to stay here again.

“Charming place to stay with very lovely owners”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

On the day of our arrival we received a very warm welcome from our hosts, and throughout the stay Bruce and Julie's hospitality was great. The Garden Flat is a real gem, located in a truly tranquil and green area adjacent to Preston Park. A real retreat after a day full of experiences either in Brighton or out in the stunning countryside.

What is more, the city center is easy to reach by bus, or as we did, by a lovely stroll through the flowering park (Approx. 30min).
All amenities ar nearby, supermarket, groceries, bakery, bus stop and not to mention pubs. By the way, forget the food they serve along Brighton Pier, for dinner we would definitely recommend Preston Park Tavern just arround the corner. Insiders' tip: Don't miss the desserts!

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and highly recommend the garden flat to anyone who esp wants to avoid city's hustle and bustle.
There was only one downside: The week was over much too soon.......

“A beautiful, comfortable, spacious flat - was perfect for us.”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This Brighton flat made our stay so perfect. The furnishings are comfortable, the kitchen is complete, the bathroom is modern. The entire place is very clean and welcoming. The owners left welcoming items such as flowers and candies that made us feel very good. Loved our stay here. The train station is just about 3 blocks away. There is a grocery also about 2 blocks away. I didn't take photos because the posted photos are quite representative.
